There is a buzz going round the sceptical blogosphere about a paper published by NAS which links to supplementary material carrying a blacklist of sceptical scientists. One of the co-authors is one Stephen Schneider, the well known propagandist and alarmist.
There was a comment in response that maybe we’d end up wearing yellow badges. Anthony Watts responded saying:
“As for yellow badges, here’s what I’d like to see all skeptics wear. Maybe somebody can come up with a theme variation specific to climate skeptics.”
I like the smiley badge idea. Maybe we could make it specific to sceptics by making the mouth into a question mark.
Kind of asking the question and blowing a raspberry at the same time.
Stoaty has helped me with my idea and come up with this:
We could get badges made in each country and put them on ebay, profits to sceptical blogs tip jars. I can get 500 2″ buttons made here for £110
UPDATE: Anthony Watts has started a competition here:
